TOKYO — Specific models of trampolines and baby sleep positioners have been removed from shelves at Army and Air Force Exchange Services as part of recalls and warnings from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The commission issued warnings recently about the sleep positioners — mats or pillows used to keep a baby from rolling around, according to a Friday news release from AAFES. The government found 12 babies died in the past 13 years while sleeping with the positioners, according to AAFES.

Three models were sold at exchange stores:

• The Sleep 2 in 1 Positioner (Style 50) manufactured by Sassy, Inc. with a UPC number of 037977000504

• The Airflow Sleep Positioner (Style 4064), with UPC number 071463040643

• The Airflow DLX Sleep Positioner/Pad (Style Y7332), with UPC number 071463073320, both manufactured by Learning Curve Brands

Any customer with the above models can return the items to their local exchange for a full refund.

The trampoline recall is a voluntary move by Bravo Sports. Model numbers 139300, 138467 and 138489 were sold at exchange stores from January 2007 through September 2010.

Consumers with these models should immediately stop using the trampolines and contact Bravo Sports for instructions on how to inspect them for top rail damage and to request revised assembly instructions.
